Three men boarded the engine of tbo southbound passenger train at Enter- prise, O., and attacked engineer dervcnder and his ttreman with ham- mers and coupling pins, knocking both senseless They did not succeed in stopping the train, however, probably owing to tho plucky fight mude by tbo trainmen, and jumped off before reach- ing Van Wert. The engineer and fireman wore both lying senseless in the cab of the loco- motive and the train, which should have stopped at Van Wert station, rushed through the yard at the rate of twenty-five milii.s an hour. Here it col- lided with a engine iind engineer Vandevender was found dead in the wreck. Tae is still unconscious and] it can not be learned whether was killed by the train robjters or mot bis death in tbo collis- ion." Nono of the passengers were seri- ously injured. A BIG CO U NATION.
